SPECIALTIES: Horse farms and equestrian properties are one of my areas of expertise! Caitlin has been involved in the horse community - riding, owning, showing and training for the most of my life. Caitlin is also a proud member of the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF).
We are happy to provide recommendations for Farriers, Vets, and Trainers etc.
We understand that every horse owner has their own special needs - and you want nothing but the best for your 4 legged friends. Whether you ride English or Western, want a Breeding Facility, a Competition Farm, or just a place to be able to go out on some hacks - we can help every step of the way to get you a perfect equestrian property for YOUR needs!
*** An equestrian property specialist should be able to provide expert guidance for YOUR needs.***
Here are a few questions that your equestrian agent should be able to answer:
• How many acres do I need? Why?
• What types of grasses in your pasture do you need to AVOID for a Breeding Facility?
• What size stalls do I need? Why?
• Can I easily convert a Saddlebred barn over to a Hunter Jumper facility? What about the other way around?
• Who pays for the fence on the property line - you? or do you split the costs with your neighbor?
Personal Life and Hobbies: Lake Lover (Cumberland and all the nearby lakes), Equestrian sports, Kid Events (Caitlin- I am a mom of 2), & Dog Snuggles. Be sure to ask us about some of our favorite spots to visit, parks and restaurants in town!
Who you are to us! Clients are more than a transaction to us- they are a relationship and a responsibility. You can be confident that we will use all of our experience, knowledge, and expertise to represent you as our client, and we will do everything we can to make it a smooth and easy process.
